    With a short big man rotation before last night's game and Camby still not yet at 100%, followed by Jeff's injury, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a lot of the same tonight as we did last night, which means a lot of Dante. Being as this is the first back to back situation of the season, I doubt the stars get a ton of run and we'll see more Armon, Luke, Elliot, Bayless, Rudy..etc. I really hope we limit Camby's minutes. It'll be so critical to the overall success of the season to ensure his health stays in tact until the other 2 centers can return.

    i agree, i anticipate seeing a lot of Dante and a pretty decent dose of Luke. i assume Marcus and LaMarcus will start and Dante will basically be the backup to both. i wonder just how much Marcus will play tonight. last night he only had two points, but also six rebounds in 18 minutes. i'd almost us rather sit him as much as possible to save him for the season. i guess behind Dante and Luke, Wesley and Nicolas may be able to pick up some slack at pf in small doses.

    ironically, our injury situation would seem to make us a smaller, faster team more prone to running. i wonder if that's how things will unfold tonight.

    I also hope that in Brandon's limited minutes he actually does something other than settle for j's all day.

    And hope to see a lot of the rookies tonight.

    you know, this was to be Jeff's chance to show what he can do on the court. perhaps now it becomes Luke's.

    Luke played well,  as painful as it sounded, it was a good lesson for the rookies.

    Positives from the loss :
    Dante and Luke both rebounded  ! The rookies got a taste of the NBA when the losses don't count.

    Bring on the Jazz !!

    Let's Go Blazers !!!!

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
